Hi, am currenlty treating my fish as one of the oscars had an injury so we are putting antibiotics in the water.

Here's the question....

do we still do water changes as notmal, or do we wait until the course has finished? The water is green because of the treatment and looks a little cloudy so we are itching to change the water, but it will dilute the medication won't it?

Sure - it would be better if the "O" is in clean water - just add more treatment to the fresh water

...but by doing so there would be no way to accurately measure how much medicine to add. You'd have no idea how much medicine was processed by the fish even given a number of gallons of a water change. I disagree about the water change. Finish the treatment first to keep the medicinal doses as accurate as possible.
